Our youth and children’s programmes wouldn’t run without the help of volunteers and
we want to thank everyone who gives of their time to help in their various roles.
The organisations are off at the moment for the Summer break but we think this is
a good time to express our need for more helpers in various groups. A few of our
young who play a big role in Unlabelled, Unique and E.P.I.C (our youth programmes)
are heading off to university come September which will leave us quite short for
leaders. We urge that you take time to think and pray before you make a decision
but if you would be interested in volunteering with our young people either on a
rota basis or a year commitment please speak to Aimee Gibson.

Activities for Week commencing 2nd December 2019
Churches are able to claim a refund of £0.25 from the Inland Revenue for every £1
a tax-paying parishioner gives to the church.
Currently, the vestry estimates that we are missing out on a possible extra £5000
because not everyone who qualifies for Gift Aid has signed up to it.
If you are unsure whether or not you qualify, or are already signed up, or simply
want to find out more information, please lift a Gift Aid form from the back of church
and contact our treasurer.
Further details can also be found inside the 2016 Financial Report
Gift Aid Coordinator
At the last meeting of the Select Vestry, Elizabeth McBurney was appointed as the
Parish Gift Aid Coordinator to assist the Honorary Treasurer, Angela Sloan, in the
administration of the Gift Aid Scheme. Liz will be seeking to expand the number
of people who are eligible to gift aid their contributions to their Free Will Offerings. If
you are a tax payer not already signed up then Liz or Angela are the persons to speak
For under 5’s & Explorers (3-7 yrs Pre school – P4)
Monday: Read Exodus 20:1-17: God gives the Israelites the Ten Commandments as a
way they can live in thankfulness to God for his rescue of them from slavery in Egypt.
Pray for yourself and for other Christians to live in thankfulness to Jesus for
his rescue of us from sin.
Tuesday: Read Exodus 20:1-17. Some people wrongly think that if you do your best
to keep the Commandments, God will accept you into heaven. But the Commandments
show us our sin, our inability to save ourselves, & our need of a Saviour. Pray
that many may turn to Jesus.
Wednesday: Read Exodus 20:1-11. When the Israelites broke the Commandments, God
gave them the sacrificial system to take away their sins. The Commandments not only
point us to Jesus as the one who gave himself for us but call us to aim at holiness.
Pray for this.
Thursday: Read Exodus 20:1-11. The Commandments about loving God come first in the
list of the 10 Commandments. Pray for the world, the work of the church, and all
mission agencies to call people to honour Jesus. Pray for our country that God will
be honoured in our land.
Friday: Read Exodus 20:12-17. The second half of the Ten Commandments call us to
love our neighbours as ourselves. Pray that we might be a loving, caring church,
where we all use our gifts to love and serve others. Pray for that we will be a
loving, caring community.
